Jeremiah Murphy

Where did this funny dude come from?

The son of an Episcopal priest and a school teacher, little Jeremiah grew up in various Massachusetts suburbs as well as New York City. For high school, he attended Thayer Academy in Braintree, MA, holding the honor of being one of the very few seniors to ever run on the Cross Country Junior Varsity Team. On The Tiger's Eye, the school's newspaper, his name was synonymous with poorly drawn editorials exposing hockey players' dipping habits and unflattering portrayals of the administration. While on stage, he was regularly cast as the "old man" because he liked to make his voice raspy and loud.

The honors didn't stop as Jeremiah proceeded onto college in Sewanee, TN where he was a Tennessee Williams Scholar for creative writing and after an honest attempt at being Pre-Med, majored in Theatre, performing in works from Eric Bogosian to William Shakespeare. Jeremiah also dove in NCAA division 3, falling into the pool with dignity and scores in the low 2's.

After college, Jeremiah lived in various basements throughout New York City, studying at Michael Howard Studios, Upright Citizens Brigade, and The People's Improv Theater. Jeremiah has delighted audiences with improv, theater, stand-up, short films, and sketch comedy, featuring many of his kooky characters such as Chuckles The Birthday Bear, New Jersey Gubernatorial Candidate Eddie McOwskey, Professor Bevan Damrosch, Sealegs McGoo, and newscaster Shit Whitman.

Jeremiah currently lives in Los Angeles. He spends his time voting for third party candidates, standing in line Trader Joe's, and taking public transportation.
